A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background.

92/100
The Wine Advocate
One of Australia's most traditional winemakers, Colin Kay fashions old style, high quality, distinctive Australian reds. Tarry, chewy, and fleshy, the 2003 Shiraz Hillside has a bit more punch (15% alcohol) as well as a sappy character that is not present in the regular bottling. It is a broad, savory, expansively flavored, full-bodied Shiraz.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161



92/100
Wine Companion
Good colour; soft, round and rich; gentle plum, mocha and vanilla; everything moulded by 2 years in oak. Shares the ultimate retro-style label with Block 6.
, James Halliday Issue: Jan 2006



90/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Ruby red. Exotic aromas of blackberry, smoked meat, vanilla, mocha and candied licorice. Fat and velvety in texture, with impressively sweet dark berry and plum flavors retaining energy and precision through the finish. Tannins are fine-grained. As in most recent vintages, an intriguing, sexy wine.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2006



85/100
Wine Spectator
Bright and chewy, with an earthy edge to the blackberry and white pepper flavors.

Kay Brothers Amery-Estate-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Dense black cherry colour and aromas of butter over blackberry and blackcurrant together with pepper, tar and liquorice.

 

The intense fruit dominant characters carry through to the velvety textured palate and combine with flavours of chocolate (mocha), liquorice, coconut, vanilla (American oak), pepper and spice - a red with tremendous mouth feel and great length.

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2000-750mL

A perfume of grilled steak intermixed with blackberries, new saddle leather, earth, pepper, and melted licorice rises from this awesome red. With great power, richness, and no hard edges, it is still young and primary, but should hit its peak in 3-7 years, and last for two decades or more.

Henry's Drive-Reserve-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Full-throttle Shiraz are fashioned from vineyards owned by the Longbottom family. This is an unabashed, flamboyant, Aussie wine that is loaded with fruit, fragrance, glycerin, and intensity. This is the type of wine that Eurocentric wine tasters and condescending elitists tend to dismiss, but it is a fascinating effort the likes of which are made nowhere else in the world. There is certainly no shortage of flavor, and if you like your wines exuberant, flamboyant, and over-sized, this wine fills the tab, and then some.

Shirvington-Estate-Shiraz-2005-750mL

The 2005 vintage is now showing deep red with a purple rim. The wine in its infancy still shows a lifted and perfumed nose with traces of red plum, blackcurrant and cracked red peppercorn. The palate with all its freshness and luxurious, velvety tannins is so rich and concentrated, yet so reserved. It is a satisfying mixture of chocolate, aniseed and smoky oak. The copious layers are incredibly tightly bound and need time and careful cellaring to unleash the full potential of this wine

Kay Brothers Amery-Estate-Cabernet Sauvignon-2003-750mL

An elegant medium bodied, rich, fruit driven wine with a deep purple hue and complex aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, black olives and coffee.

 

The fruit dominant palate displays flavours of bIackberry, cedar, mocha chocolate, liquorice and mint combined with fine integrated oak and grape tannins and a long persistent finish.

 

This red developed beautifully in the glass and is an excellent food wine, which will complement rather than dominate food.

Koltz-Estate-Shiraz-2002-750mL

The Koltz Shiraz is the first of the estate grown wines and comes from a small block of shiraz at Blewitt Springs. It is produced in small volumes and is open fermented and basket pressed. Portions of this wine undergo extended maceration for up to 50 days, depending on the season and grape maturity.

 

Once pressed it is aged in French oak barrels for 16 to 20 months. Approximately 30% of the barrels are new and the others one and two years old.

 

Blewitt Springs is generally 2 to 4 weeks later than most of McLaren Vale and this combined with the sandy soils over ironstone produce distinctive wines. 

 

Tatsing notes: Typically, these Koltz Shiraz show aromas of blueberries and earth and are elegant with velvety tannins and good length. Extended maceration contributes to the complexity of Koltz Shiraz and the aim with this wine is to produce a wine which reflects both the vineyard site and the philosophy.
